It's Heisman Time
Market: Who will win the 2006 Heisman Trophy?
Stock: Troy Smith
Risk: Depends on what you think OSU’s chances against Michigan are.
Many people will agree that Troy Smith hasn’t been better. His touchdowns (21) and yards (1,715) are unbelievable, but it's his touchdown-to-turnover ratio that really turns heads. This year he has thrown 21 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions. Smith is winning big road games (Texas, Iowa) and has shined against tough competition (Against Texas, Iowa, and Penn State). Smith's efficiency and decision making are what set him apart. The Heisman is Troy Smith’s to lose. OSU is averaging just under 35 points and allowing only just above 8 points. The only way I see Troy Smith losing the Heisman is if OSU loses to Michigan (or some other opponent, but Michigan has the best chance), but even still he has a good chance, and with OSU’s stats, I don’t see them losing.
